Come and join fellow migrants for a morning of reflection and celebration in honour of St Joseph the Worker.
London is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world, home to migrant communities who have come to seek shelter from oppression and to improve their situation. Many of the new migrants to our city are Catholics, and their social, pastoral and spiritual needs are made manifest in our churches and parish communities. Many recent migrants living in London can experience exploitation and racism. Our faith, driven by Catholic Social Teaching, demands that we stand up and speak out as one for justice, social cohesion and for a society which values the contribution of migrants.
The Mass will begin with a procession of representatives from London’s diverse communities, occupations and civic organisations.
